My husband hates spring. Hates it! Where we live, spring starts off with what we call mud season. All the snow melts and the ground starts to thaw out and it’s a royal, muddy mess. Part of mud season means the roads get posts to heavy loads aren’t allowed on certain roads until all the active ground thawing stops. It also means that people, like loggers, can’t really work because their equipment will just sink in the mud in the woods. Growing up, his dad worked in the woods and he often helped (he will always be a logger at heart) so he remembers spring as a time when they couldn’t work.
Me? I love spring! Winter is long, cold, and snowy. Sure, I hate the mud that gets tracked into my house but it’s a small price to pay to no longer be cold. Spring makes me happy! I love the warm air and new growth outside. If you’re like me and like to welcome spring with open arms, you are going to love this list of the best spring products.
What better way to welcome in spring than with a fresh pedicure? My feet are in socks and boots all winter. As much as I love a good pair of boots, it is amazing to put on my favorite pair of sandals again. A pedicure just makes it that much more fun. I’m not into the high-end nail polishes but I do love Sinful Colors nail polish. I received a couple colors for a free a few years back and have found the quality to be amazing for the price.
Spring is also a great time to break out all those cute, spring sundresses. It’s also a great time to buy a new one. I’m really eyeing this dress for this year. I also really love the deep purple and teal ones.
Spring is a perfect time for getting organized. My favorite company for organizing is Thirty-One. It is why I am a Thirty-One consultant! But, if I didn’t love and stand by their products, I would not be part of the company. When it comes to spring, there are a few organizing products that I love.
The Double Duty Caddy is great for organizing so many different things. School supplies, sidewalk chalk and bubbles, make-up, dog grooming supplies, and so much more. I use one in my vehicle to hold car toys. It really can do so much. And with lots of different prints, so much for spring!
The Mini Catch All is perfect for lots of different things but one of them is a place to put things to get put away. No matter how organized you are, there will always be stuff that needs to be put away. We all need a place to put that stuff.
Spring wouldn’t be as fun without a new bag for you! Organizing goes beyond your home. An organized purse can go a long ways towards helping you when you’re out and about. The Demi Day Bag is my absolute favorite. If you prefer a crossbody, the Organizing Shoulder Bag is a great choice.
For the Kids
Spring is a great time for kids to play outside. Sidewalk chalk can be used on more than just a sidewalk or driveway. We have a large rock in our backyard that my kids and their friends love to draw on. You can also use sidewalk chalk on a deck. I prefer to only allow this when it is going to rain later or the next day, but you could just wash it away with a garden hose.
Spring is also a great time to break out the bubble blow. Bubble blow just doesn’t work as well in the winter. My kids are always so excited to be able to play with bubbles again. It always just feels like spring to see the bubbles floating around and hearing the kids giggle as they chase after them.
If you’re into gardening or want to teach your kids about gardening, a kid-sized gardening kit is a great thing for spring. Kids love to have their own tools and things their size. It makes it more fun to them.
It’s also a great time to unearth the sandbox and to create a great outdoor play space. If you don’t have a sandbox yet, be sure to check out my post on how to DIY a sandbox for under $20. You may not be able to build a snowman with sand but you can build a sandcastle and that is way more fun. 😉
Spring is an amazing time of renewal and hope. It always feels so bright and happy, especially if you live somewhere with a long winter. It is definitely something to celebrate and welcome with open arms. These best spring products will help you do just that!
